John Sinclair Radio Show 729: Star Time

The John Sinclair Radio Show

Episode 729 is coming from Radio Free Amsterdam headquarters in Detroit with an hour of music by James Brown that has just been transferred from a cassette of my Blue Sensations radio show from WDET in Detroit on June 23, 1991 that featured the 4-CD box set titled Star Time. There’s another hour of James that will follow on next week’s John Sinclair Radio Show, making this a double dose of dynamite to mark Halloween and All Soul’s Day this year.
